From the Farmer to Your Plate: How Summer Specials Come to Life

During this time of year (the growing season) writing specials becomes different as it is the time when I get truly inspired by the ingredients my farmers bring to my back door… It’s visual, aromatic and taste stimulation, thoughts rush through my mind:

“What would taste great with that?”
“What would look good with that?”
“How can I add a texture without screwing up the simplicity of the ingredient?”

…Anyway I love my farmers, thank you for making my life fun, stimulating and interesting. These photos are how tonight’s app special came to be:
